Before there were two castles but today there only remain ruins, Cauro has kept its mountain charming. The village is especially known to have the skull of Sampiero Corso which has been sealed in one of the stones of the church Santa Barbara. After the hero’s death, his head was exposed in Ajaccio.
This territory, known for its wine culture, has two vineyards that will delight your taste buds.
Clos Capitoro, the first bottling of which dates back to 1856, currently covers 30 ha in the Ajaccio Controlled appellation, and consists of 2 plots; Punta di Cuccu, 15 ha, Capitoro, 15 ha. The Bianchetti family practices traditional cultivation there, plowing, heaving, picking by hand and the harvest is manual.
Clos Ornasca, created in 1995 by Vincent Tola, is a human-sized domain that produces AOC Ajaccio wines, exploiting the typicity of the main grape variety, Sciaccarello. The vineyard has been in organic conversion since spring 2017.
